Default So I placed the order

I ended up finally biting the bullet and placing an order for parts to build a new computer. Here's what I got:

Case - Antec 300
PSU - Corsair TX750W
MB - Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
CPU - Phenom II X4 955
GPU - XFX Radeon HD4870 1GB
RAM - G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3-1600 CL9 2x2GB
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB
CPU cooler - Arctic Freezer Cooler 7 Pro
Case fans - 2xXIGMATEK XLF-F1253 120mm

After shipping and a horrendous 13% sales tax, everything came to about $1040 Canadian

Nevermind my earlier comment. Didn't know it had a revision 2. Solid build.

Why won't it work? As long as they got revision 2 (of course, they didn't state it, so hopefully they did), it'll work. - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
